Enrol as a Virtual Exchange Student in Tokyo School Life


School Girls in seifuku 'nuff said

Visual novels are nothing new in Japan but they're still incredibly niche in the west. I don't think we'll be seeing copies of Clannad or School Days on the shelves of Gamestop anytime soon, but they're gradually finding their way onto Valve's distribution service, Steam. 

M2 Co.'s latest offering Tokyo School Life follows the tried and true visual novel formula of falling in love with in high school via text boxes and illustrations. However there's a few upgrades added to Tokyo School Life that puts it above the vanilla visual novel. Fully voiced female characters, extensive Japanese language options, and graphics powered by the E-mote system. E-mote brings the characters closer to the third dimension by smoothly animating the 2D illustrations thus enhancing their appearance. 

E-mote may sound gimmicky but judging from the gameplay, the characters really do pop out of the background making everything more dynamic and bright. I'm also really digging the character designs on the girls. All of them are major cuties so I know I'm going to have a hard time choosing that special someone to romance. 

Tokyo School Life is out right now on Steam for $12.74 exclusively for PC.
